New! Postdoctoral Research Position - Dr. Oleh Khalimonchuk Lab (posted 08/08/2020)

We are looking for a talented and self-driven postdoctoral fellow to join Dr. Oleh Khalimonchuk’s laboratory in the Department of Biochemistry, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Postdoctoral candidates should have recently received their degree with a strong background and track record in organelle biology, molecular cell biology, protein biochemistry or related field. Preference will be given to candidates experienced with human/mammalian cell culture work. The position is effective immediately and offers a competitive salary and benefits package.

The successful candidate will work on an NIH-funded project encompassing both the mechanistic and functional studies to understand fundamental roles of evolutionarily conserved protein quality control factors in mitochondrial fidelity and cellular health. The candidate’s research will focus on: 1) delineating new disease-relevant mechanism by which mitochondrial architecture is regulated; 2) investigating the critical physiological role of several proteolytic modules in the maintenance of mitochondrial ion homeostasis; and 3) determining structural basis for the function of two quality control factors of biomedical relevance. This work will help us better understand how mitochondrial fidelity is achieved and maintained, and how failing mitochondrial homeostasis contributes to aging-related degenerative disorders such as ALS, parkinsonism, and Alzheimer’s disease. The Khalimonchuk lab is located in the George W. Beadle Center and offers a vigorous and supportive research environment and access to state-of-the-art proteomics, metabolomics, crystallography and imaging facilities.
